HILARY SAYS REVIEW:
Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules claim to be formulated with optimum levels of antioxidant power to improve the visible signs of ageing and counteract the damaging effects of everyday pollution. It also claims to de-stress the skin, helping to break down the accumulation of harmful toxins.
Day Capsules – Each capsule contains just 12 ingredients, but 9 of the ingredients are fragrance ingredients (like citronellol, geraniol, linalool, citral, limonene, farnesol). The other 3 are Moringa Oil, Vitamin E Oil and Rose Flower Extract….THAT’S ALL! Agreed, some fragrance ingredients are known antioxidants, but they cause skin sensitivity in the long run. There so many other antioxidants Elemis could’ve used in these capsules.
Moringa Oil is a non-fragrant plant oil that contains several antioxidants, it is also a very good source of oleic acid, which can replenish the akin can help guard against moisture loss. Vitamin E Oil & Rose Flower Extract are also great antioxidant ingredients.
Night Capsules – Each capsule contains 8 ingredients, 6 of them are fragrant oils. The other 2 are Moringa Oil and Vitamin E Oil.
You are paying $105 for Moringa Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Rose Extract and a whole lot of known skin sensitizers! I strongly DO NOT recommend.
